Summary This comprehensive reference book addresses the unique challenges facing many African nations as poor infrastructure and economics continue to obstruct access to advanced treatments and AIDS care training. While it takes into account the context of settings with limited resources, it also looks ahead to how many African nations are successfully increasing their capacity to serve those affected by HIV and AIDS. Information on how to best utilize existing resources and prioritize scaling-up of infrastructure is a critical aspect of this book for those working in HIV/AIDS-related fields in Africa
